After the release of the King Krule EP in 2011 this 18 year old singer songwriter has gone from strength to strength. Following his nomination for the BBC’s Sound of 2013, it’s no surprise Krule’s scatterbrained, venturous single ‘Octopus’ is the latest of his songs to be made into a video.
The single itself swings effervescently over gentle synth and guitar swells before skipping into a skittering, jumpy drum loop. Krule’s calm, hypnotic delivery is reminiscent of Morrissey and Edwyn Collins and like his idols the Londoner clearly knows how to keep his audience captivated. It’s tropical, it’s sombre, it’s troubled. Have a listen. It’d be Krule not to.
